The image is a very old sketch of me by Kelly Freas, the artist who drew Mad Magazine's Alfred E. Newman.
I've spent so much time schlepping (and sometimes schleeping) on DC's I495 that I sometimes feel like mowing the grass between the inner and outer loops. Living "on the Beltway" is seeing the silly side of Washington, and sometimes the poignant side.
So I am a political writer. My heart is in my political novels, especially concerning climate change. But I also write some political non-fiction.
